Entrance Exam Preparation


Peak Tuition specialises in preparing students for entrance exams to independent private schools in the North West and across the UK, and grammar schools (11 plus). We are extremely proud of our outstanding success rate helping students gain places at the schools of their choice.

When you arrange for your child to have their entrance exam preparation with Peak Tuition you can reduce some of that apprehension knowing that we are familiar with the exam processes of all the local schools, we have a wealth of experience preparing students and consistently strong past results. If you would like to apply for schools further afield down south & around London, we are also suitably equipped to support this goal too.

Obviously, we cannot guarantee that a pupil will win a place at the school of their choice. We assess students initially and offer a home tuition slot if, in our experience, we feel they have a realistic chance of passing their respective exam. We will then devise a study plan tailored for your child that will allow them to work in a focused way with help, feedback and encouragement from their tutor.

We do not believe it is ethical to charge our clients or raise the hopes of the student if the prospect of a pass is unlikely. If this is the case, we will always be on hand to support you with finding the right school for your child.

Independent Schools


Independent school exams are not as standardised as selective grammar schools and therefore, tutors must have a thorough understanding of the expectations of each school. At Peak Tuition, we ensure we are continuously up-to-date and have access to the most current materials. We can tailor an education package for any desired school, listed are some of our most common:


  • Manchester Grammar School for Boys
  • Manchester High School for Girls
  • Bolton School (all divisions)
  • The Grange School Hartford
  • Stockport Grammar School
  • St Bede’s College
  • Withington Girls’ School

Selective Grammar Schools


Our tutors have significant experience providing entrance exam preparation for the selective grammar 11 plus. Competition to secure a place is very high. A sound academic performance and excellent logical thinking skills are required. These tests demand a similar academic level to independent exams, however, due to the number of applicants the pass mark is often higher, in the case of Altrincham Grammar School for Boys as high as 85%.


  • Altrincham Grammar School for Boys
  • Altrincham Grammar School for Girls
  • St Ambrose College
  • Loreto Grammar School
